The Jive Longboard, is a sleek lined trimming machine. Its 2 1 fin set up gives you lots of drive, while its slightly rolled Vee bottom through the back half keeps those turns really smooth through rail to rail transitions, its flatter midsection rocker gives you plenty of trimming speed and the slight nose rocker makes for easy nose riding!
OUTLINE: This sleek outline has a slightly pulled in tail for drive and acceleration in turns and its subtle pulled in nose helps with tighter arching turns without catching in those steeper sections of the wave.
ROCKER: With emphasis on being an all rounder the Jive has a medium rocker with a flat panel through the mid section which makes this board paddle with ease and flows through those dead sections with minimal effort. A slight lift in the nose makes those late take offs easier and also helps with lift while nose riding, while the slight lift in the tail makes for nice drive and tight arc through your turns.
CONTOURS: Subtle yet effective, the slight concave in the nose creates lift while hanging those toes over. Its flatter midsection creates speed and trim and the slightly rolled vee through the back half makes for ease of rail to rail transitions.

|Construction||Polyester – PUPolyester or PU construction uses traditional materials and laminating techniques to produce a strong, reliable surfboard with high quality finishes. All polyester boards are CNC milled from the shapers files and laminated by hand using quality components such as Hexcel fiberglass, Silmar resin and Bennett foam.
For years traditional polyester boards have been at the forefront of performance surfing. These boards feature a progressive flex pattern controlled by a high-grade timber stringer and feel very reliable under your feet. Polyester construction will perform in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.
